New York & London: Horace Liveright & Jonathan Cape, 1931. "This great travel book is the greatest surely in the English language. 'Arabia Deserta' is not a book: it is a continent." and ".the greatest epic in all the literature of travel" (St. John Philby). Originally published in 1888, it was rediscovered and popularized by T.E. Lawrence. Doughty (1843-1926) crafted his work in a more leisurely time, hence it also was exceedingly long; these selections by the famous critic and editor Edward Garnett (1868-1937) will certainly suffice for ours. This is a Very Good Plus copy of the First Edition, which is uncommon. Glossy black cloth binding with bright gilt lettering. Bright and fresh text, 320 pages (includes a Glossary). There is a faint crease along the length of the spine, else a Near Fine copy. Lacking the dustwrapper. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. First Edition.
